Hitting and Staph

Well, we are the proud parents of the hitter in class.  I picked Parker up from School yesterday and his Day Sheet had a sweet message at the bottom.  After that sweet message was the bad message.  Parker is 110% BOY!  He loves to play rough and get dirty.  That's what boys do. Lee and I had to sit Parker down last night and explain to him that he can only hit daddy when they are playing and that we don't hit our friends.  Oh the joy of being the mom of a boy!

On Friday, October 4, Parker had a bump on his leg.  He told us that a Mosquito bit him at school.  We put Neosporin on it and covered it with a Band-Aid just to be on the safe side.  It continued to become red around the bump and Parker complained that it hurt.  The picture below was taken on October 6. 
My sister is in nursing school so on Wednesday morning, October 9, I took a picture (the one below)and sent it to her.  She said it was staph and that I needed to get him to his pediatrician as soon as possible.  I took him and sure enough, it was staph.  He's on an oral antibiotic and has a prescription ointment for his leg.  It looks so much better.  
Have a wonderful week!
